romney. was it just a question of manners? also, while polls show mitt romney turning things around, he still faces a big hurdle in a critical battleground state. why ohio's so-called walmart moms may not be sold on the republican nominee. and should race or ethnic background be considered when students apply to college? the u.s. supreme court weighs a new challenge to affirmative action. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> the obama administration got a grilling today over the assault on the united states consulate in benghazi, libya, that took the lives of the united states ambassador and three other americans. state department officials took a lot of heat in a partisan congressional hearing. and the white house was also bombarded with questions today about the handling of the entire incident. let's go live to our white house correspondent, dan lothian. he's got the very latest. dan. >> reporter: wolf, you know, this was the first briefing that we've had in about two weeks because the president
:00 p.m. pacific time right here on nfc. >>> the latest nbc news wall street journal marist polls find that republican nominee mitt romney has surged in three swing states. governor romney's largest gain was in virginia where he now leads president obama 48 to 47%. that's a virtual tie and within the margin of error. in florida president obama retains a one point lead over romney, 48 to 47%. in that key battleground state of ohio mitt romney gained two points but the president still leads 51 to 45. >>> well, elsewhere today marks one month since the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. yesterday the white house again lied any intentional coverup of what led to the assault and said the investigation continues. lawmakers demanded to know how lax security may have been and whether warning signs were simply ignored. nbc's steve handlesman is in washington. >> reporter: to highlight his concern, president obama had his terrorism advisor john brennan in libya to push the investigation of the 9/11 2012 attack that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three others. but r
you've seen, and the polls show it, the romney/ryan ticket has momentum. the polls have tightened in recent days following mitt romney's performance, where he obviously won that debate. there's a lot more attention here. if joe biden is able to perform very well -- and he's a pretty good debater. if he's able to perform pretty well perhaps he can stem some of that momentum, at least dampen a little criticism heading into the debate next week in new york, buy the president a little time. if paul ryan clearly dominates in this debate it will be seen very much as a one-two punch and that will just mean more momentum. >> they've been, as we call it in college, cramming. how have both of them been preparing? >> reporter: yeah. it is like cramming. i think it's sort of like going back, studying for -- one aide told me it's like studying for the s.a.t.s in the middle of a campaign. they go over a lot of briefing materials. they're brushing up on domestic and foreign policy, getting to certainly know each other's positions on everything. there's a lot of sort of time spent aalone where th
that romney's favorables were not higher or there wasn't more of a change. the nbc news/marist poll october 3rd, romney, 42%, unfavorables 51%. now favorables are 44%, unfavorables 50%. that's within margin of error. effective i will no change, was surprising given the debate performance. >> the data are very clear, national data and individual state level data that we're seeing. and there has been movement. the race has changed and it is much more competitive than it was ten days ago, much more competitive. now the movement in ohio, the romney movement has been weaker than it was nationally or in places like virginia, florida, or colorado. and i think part of that is the obama campaign did a very good job early on airing ads early, focusing on ohio and delivering a message and defining mitt romney. they did not do that as well in the other states and frankly some of the other states have a more fundamental republican bend. it's true, the early obama ads about romney defining him, his wealth, i think it worked. the romney folks have a longer way to go. i should point out, alex, that it is pos
romney, for goodness sakes, mitt romney edged him in the fox poll on favorability. they've been attacking, the president and the vice president have been doing mostly attacking mostly on character, mostly personal attacks on tear opponents for five or six months. i would submit that has taken a heavy toll on the favorability and even the likability of the democratic ticket. and it looks like they're gonna have to keep it up to keep their base satisfied. but i don't know that that that's going to please swing voters. megyn: yeah. that underscores the problems going into a night like tonight. after a night like last week. chris stirewalt, thank you, sir. >> you bet. megyn: conservative and liberal bloggers are doing battle over a question of bias ahead of tonight's debate. the moderator is martha raddatz, she was chosen by the commission on presidential debates to do this. she has touched off a bit of a debate in the last few days. trace gallagher is tracking that piece of the story. >> martha raddatz is much more apt to be covering war than politics, she stopped covering the white house ba
it could stop the bleeding. >> reporter: new polls from three battleground states show romney now has a one-points edge in colorado. in wisconsin the race is tightening. the president's 6-point lead before his first debate with romney is now down to three points while in virginia, the president has a five-point lead. romney and the president debate for the second time next week in new york. >> and despite the poll numbers that are showing that mitt romney's gaining support this morning on "cbs this morning," advisor david axelrod insists there is no slide in support for president obama that in fact there is no momentum for mitt romney... we'll see what happens after tonight. randall pinkston, cbs 5. >> we will have to see whacks tonight but what strategies can we expect from both ryan and biden? >> reporter: well, of course, ryan will be focusing on the economic numbers. he knows the numbers and he will be talking about the failures in the obama administration, failures to create jobs, failures to fix the -- what's wrong with the economy while violent biden will be mounting a defense just a
of polls on republican mitt romney and we will like to show you this. joe biden has more unfavorable than favorables. paul ryan plus 16 and that may due to the fact. can do record still being introduced in the country. he will get a chance to get better acquainted with folks who don't know him better tonight. >> gretchen: thank you so much. we'll talk to you soon. >> brian: i believe that this would be the most consequential debate. because of how poorly the president did. every 10 people that you talk tompt 7 out of 10 said that the president got crushed. momentum is firmly in the romney camp and now 42 year old paul ryan against 69 year old joe biden and a guy who has been studying fervantly has to take on the whiz kid from congress. is he capable of stopping the bleeding. >> steve: the moderator will be martha ratz. she's the moderator and she is a long-time correspondant for abc news. she is the moderator of the vp debate. guess what was in attendance of her wedding in 1991 when she married a harvard lawyer. you know who went to er wedding? barack obama and mr. obama, her then husband

before last week's debate. we're coming out with new polls right afterwards. and what they show is that there has been some movement in mitt romney's direction since his debate performance last week. but not a whole lot. so in the state of virginia which actually had their biggest movement, president obama last week was up two points, 48% to 46%. now it's mitt romney at 1%, 48%, 47% and this is all in the margin of error. in florida, it's president obama went in to the debate last week up 1% in the state. he remains up 1%, 48% to 47%. and in ohio, the last week right before the debate, he was leading mitt romney by eight points. now it's six points, 51% to 45%. >> so we're seeing some of the shift after the debate, although it's not a significant shift in numbers. but how is the white house reacting to the new numbers coming out? >> i think they're pretty comforted by them. they see that mitt romney was able to make some marginal gains but nothing that substantially transformed the race. now, of course, they need a good debate performance from joe biden tonight, two more solid d
